Basil - Sweet - Ocimum basilicum

Annual Sweet basil is a slow-bolting variety that makes a wonderful pesto, and is a great choice for taking to market. Its dark-green leaves are broad and uniform.

Did You Know? Basil is rich in vitamin K and beta-carotene, natural anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Soil & Water: Plant in full sun in well-draining soil. Basil does not require fertile soil, however it performs best when organic matter is added. Provide even water throughout development.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost, or sow directly once soil temperatures have reached at least 70F. Pinch ends during development for a bushy plant. Basil has a very low germination rate; it is not uncommon to have germination rates of 60%. Sow heavily and thin to the most vigorous seedlings. Basil will not perform below 50F; pot indoors during winter for a year-round supply.

Harvesting & Storage: Regular harvesting will keep production high. Use leaves fresh or frozen. Remove flower stalks to extend harvest. Be sure to make the last harvest prior to first frost.
